Light therapy for nonseasonal major depressive disorder?
Practice Changer: Consider treatment with bright light therapy, alone or in combination with fluoxetine, for patients with nonseasonal major depressive disorder (MDD).1
Strength of recommendation (SOR)
Illustrative case: A 38-year old woman recently diagnosed with MDD without a seasonal patter comes to see you for her treatment options. Her Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HAM-D) is 22, and she is not suicidal. Should you consider bright light therapy in addition to pharmacotherapy?
